For the past several months we’ve been hearing about car companies extending warranties and even allowing you to bring your car back if you lose your job—all to help make the case for not delaying a purchase decision. This novel approach appears to be working its way into the industrial equipment market as well.

Fuji Electric Corp of America (FECOA) announced that, as of April 1, 2009, the warranty period for component general purpose ac drives and commercial packaged energy-saving drives has been extended to three years.

According to the company, Fuji ac drives are known for their reliable, compact and economical designs, and the decision to extend the warranty was based upon high performance and long-life, due to Fuji Electric superior quality, manufacture and Fuji Electric’s own IGBTs power components.

The extended warranty policy guarantees repair or replacement of parts for the warranty period. Products covered are the Frenic-Mini, Frenic-Multi, Frenic-Eco, Frenic5000G11S, Frenic5000P11S and EcoPak for a three-year period from the shipment date.
